INDUSTRY NEWS


Is lack of diversity holding back your business?
Business 2 Community
We're constantly told that diversity is a good thing. Unfortunately, when you hear something often enough, you take that knowledge for granted — instead of being "good for reasons X, Y, and Z," it just becomes "good." It's accepted as fact, and once you've accepted something as fact, you stop thinking about it in so much detail. It's only once you step back and start thinking about it again that you'll actually be able to benefit. If you need help with that, try starting here.

5 ways to become a better job interviewer
Forbes
When you're happily employed, you probably don't give much thought to job interviews. If you are career savvy, you nurture your network, maintain your thought leadership brand and keep your skills updated. But actual job interview training can wait until you need it.

Harvard Business Review
Aspiring junior executives dream of climbing the ladder to gain more authority. They can make things happen and create the change that they believe in. Senior executives, on the other hand, are frustrated by how little power they actually have. The problem is that, while authority can compel action, it does little to inspire belief.
